Scripture: John 12:1-11
1Six days before the Passover, Jesus came to Bethany, where Laz'arus was, whom Jesus had raised from the dead. 2There they made him a supper; Martha served, and Laz'arus was one of those at table with him. 3Mary took a pound of costly ointment of pure nard and anointed the feet of Jesus and wiped his feet with her hair; and the house was filled with the fragrance of the ointment. 4But Judas Iscariot, one of his disciples (he who was to betray him), said, 5"Why was this ointment not sold for three hundred denarii and given to the poor?" 6This he said, not that he cared for the poor but because he was a thief, and as he had the money box he used to take what was put into it. 7Jesus said, "Let her alone, let her keep it for the day of my burial. 8The poor you always have with you, but you do not always have me." 9When the great crowd of the Jews learned that he was there, they came, not only on account of Jesus but also to see Laz'arus, whom he had raised from the dead. 10So the chief priests planned to put Laz'arus also to death, 11because on account of him many of the Jews were going away and believing in Jesus. 12The next day a great crowd who had come to the feast heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem.
Meditation on Today's Scripture:
Today’s gospel we see that the whole house was filled with the perfume of the ointment. What Mary had done brought sweetness not only in the physical sense, but the spiritual sense as well. Her lovely action shows the lavishness of love - a love that we cannot outmatch. The Lord Jesus showed us the wastefulness of his love in giving the best he had by pouring out his own blood for our sake and by anoint us with his Holy Spirit. The Apostle Paul says that nothing will be able to divide us from the love of God in Christ Jesus. Do we permit the love of Christ to rule in all your thoughts and intentions, and in all your words and deeds? Give us, Infant Jesus, a lively faith, a firm hope, a fervent charity, a love of you. Take from us all lukewarmness in meditation, dullness in prayer. Give us fervor and delight in thinking of you and your grace, your tender compassion towards us. The things we pray for, good Lord, give us grace to labor for: through Jesus Christ our Lord.
